As announced at the end of November construction works are underway at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. After the fateful accidents of Luis Salom and Enric Saurí, it was necessary for those responsible to take measures and work to continue obtaining the homologation of the FIM.
The own Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna, had dropped that if the Grand Prix of Catalonia was not acted soon could fall off the calendar, regardless of having a date less, since the safety of the pilots was paramount.
Resurfacing and turning a safer Turn 12
The pilot complaints They have been heard about the potholes all over the track and they are finally going to have a new asphalt that will undoubtedly make the track faster but also safer. This week they are starting with the first layer that will be 3 centimeters and next week they will the final 4 centimeters, as they themselves have announced on the social networks of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
The fix made by the organization with the F1 chicane after Salom's accident did not end up convincing the pilots who called the new circuit layout "boring" so they will also return to the original route but increasing safety at turn 12.
To do this, they have eliminated stands, making the space up to the wall wider so that the riders do not arrive with as much speed towards it in the event of an accident. What's more the escape will be gravel since the asphalt that had been there until now did not fulfill the desired function in one of the fastest and most dangerous sections of the entire Circuit.
